1920s Multicoloured Burn Out Velvet Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Sensational and rare multi-coloured burn out velvet flapper dress with a brown, yellow, orange and blue grape pattern on a black background. This sleeveless dress comes with original matching belt and (very delicate) black slip, which creates the third under layer of the black chiffon skirt. There are no fastenings, the dress just slips on over the head and is straight cut in typical flapper style. A beautiful piece; the top and seen layer being in excellent condition, especially for something of this age. The underslip is original and so we have kept with the dress although this is now very fragile around the shoulders.
